The final performance of the 16-17 theatre season at McPherson College will be a special treat for Kansas audiences, as it’s the first production of the unique “Love and Information” in the state. Showing in Mingenback Theatre April 20-22, it’s unlikely this show will be seen anywhere else afterward, either – at least, not in the same way as on the McPherson College stage. That’s by design. Caryl Churchill wrote “Love and Information” so that there are five sections, each consisting of multiple scenes that may be performed in any order, which opens up tremendous flexibility by allowing the scenes within each section to be re-arranged however a particular director desires. Churchill also includes a number of short vignettes that may be dropped into the play at any point… or not used at all. The arrangement of these vignettes can dramatically change their meaning. The ensemble cast portrays more than 100 different characters – often of vague gender and with the potential for actors to play multiple characters… or for multiple actors to play the same character. In scenes that rarely extend more than a few minuses, the work explores flawed and beautiful relationships and personal communication.
